DirecTV (DTV) and Dish Network (DISH) have already come out strongly against Comcast's (CMCSA) planned takeover of Time Warner Cable (TWC) and nervousness among a number of other companies, including TV network owners and small cable operators, is surfacing, said The Wall Street Journal. 21st Century Fox (FOXA) president Chase Carey told an investment conference that he expects competition in broadband to be a major factor in the merger review, while Time Warner (TWX) CEO Jeff Bewkes said that "in the long run there are some questions on competition" and he expects the government to "make sure the appropriate conditions are in place." Some industry executives, notably including Scripps Networks Interactive (SNI) CFO Joseph NeCastro, have played down concerns, the report noted. Reference Link

05:52 EDTCMCSA, TWC, DISH, DTVRuling in Netflix case a negative for Rovi, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty says court filings released after yesterday's market close indicate Netflix (NFLX) was granted a motion of summary invalidating all five of the remaining Rovi (ROVI) patents that were being contested. Auty expects Rovi to sell off on the news as investors consider what the ruling may do to the company's upcoming contract renewals with Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), DirecTV (DTV) and DISH (DISH). The "big 4" choosing to litigate against Rovi is "certainly a possibility," but the companies have bigger patent infringement exposures than an over-the-top vendor like Netflix, Auty writes in a research note. He keeps a Neutral rating on Rovi.
